Just after Christmas, Country Boy took me down to the orchard to show me how all the trees were going. Of course I took the camera along, and the kids followed along for the walk too. The orchard is green because we water the trees regularly, and it is a stark contrast with the surrounding hills which are yellow.The fruit in the orchard continues to grow, and we watch with excitement as the small crops ripen. We hope to have a few pears and nectarines, and a big bucket of apples to go with the sour cherries we have already harvested.
The kids were having a lovely time running around and rolling in the soft grass, so I thought I would take some photos…. only they didn’t feel like cooperating. They ran away as fast as they could, and turned their backs on me.
The orchard was beautiful though, so I left them to their mood, and snapped a few photos anyway.
